Study materials are provided to the attendees, so they may share what they’ve learned with their friends and family members.
Football Clinic – The Clinic is designed to teach the fundamentals of football. Each child will be partnered with a Spartan Player to go over techniques, best practices, results of dedication, and much more. Highlights include focus on the mental and physical aspects of football, detailed attention towards various positions, footwork, and the vision of the game. Drills will be taught and performed, while sound mechanics are instilled within the participants.
CPR Training Course – A CPR Representative will teach the Certification Course, so that all participants may become CPR Certified. *This event requires a minimum number of participants.
Red Cross Blood Drive – Every minute of the day, someone needs blood. That blood can come from a volunteer donor, a person who makes the decision of donating blood. A Member of the Red Cross will receive blood donations from qualified adults to provide those in need of donated blood.
